Mental Health First Aid is a first line of assistance with matters of wellbeing, to determine how you can best be helped in your particular situation. It is not a form of therapy, though assistance with referrals can be provided if you think this is necessary or desirable. All consultations are strictly confidential. If you would rather speak with another person, you can also contact the Mental Health First Aid team at the Graduate Academy: https://www.uni-jena.de/en/mhfa
